It’s impossible to imagine, but today Red Bull Elevation turned the Parque Metropolitano into a runway. Thirty bicycles rolled for more than three hours over tons of dirt that give shape to the most impressive BMX Dirt Jump track.
The best riders of the world jumped up to three meters of height with only one thing in mind: to perform the best and most perfect tricks such as tailwhips, barspins and frontflips.
Airing Sunday, May 11, at 8:00pm and 11:00pm ET (5:00pm and 8:00pm Pacific Time), and re-airing several more times over the next month, FUEL TV will showcase “Firsthand: Alistair Whitton.”
This Firsthand with Alistair Whitton follows this U.K. transplant as he discusses why he rides BMX and how it has changed his life. Alistair is known throughout the pro community for his all-or-nothing attitude and fun-loving personality. Alistair takes us back to his early riding days in the U.K. before turning to traveling stunt shows, which provided a taste of his life to come. He discusses the impact Camp Woodward has had on his pro BMX career and its affect on his life away from riding.
Alistair then sets off for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to pick up his MacNeil teammates and Vans Teammate Gary Young, giving them a tour of some of his favorite spots on the East Coast and in his home of Greenville, North Carolina.

When I heard that Kevin Jones was going to design another frame for Hoffman Bikes it definitely caught my attention. Starting in May of 2008 I will not only be riding a Hoffman Bike, but will also be riding for Hoffman Bikes. With the support from Hoffman Bikes I will be able to travel to more jams and competitions, keep the lights and heat going in my winter riding spot, and help spread the growth of flatland and BMX.
Thanks of course to Suelo for their dedicated support over the past five years. I will still be riding some Suelo parts on my Hoffman Strowler frame and would like to thank them for their support. Of course I will continue to ride for Dan’s Competition, as they have sponsored me since before I was even a pro. Thanks again to my sponsors for their support, and I hope that you will get to see my new bike in action
